Summer Box Office De-stresser

23 Apr

Hello everyone its GM Shawn. Back from Vegas. My personal favorite part of the trip, besides going to Vegas, was meeting the creator of “The Walking Dead Robert Kirkman.

See PD Adamson on the left. Me on the right with the hat.:

But let me not be distracted by my trip. We do have some de-stressing to do for all the University of West Georgia students taking massive finals this week.

Thanks to we talked about the 6 Tips to Beat Final Exams.

  1. Avoid stressful people.
  2. Eat healthy and exercise.
  3. Just say NO. – to people who will waste your time.
  4. Force yourself to take breaks.
  5. Visualize it all going right.
  6. If you’ve studied all you can, get up your confidence! – probably one of the harder ones.

Stay tuned in all week for more tips on staying stress free not just from final exams, but from life in general.

Next up was our stretched out time slot for Josh Sewell. Our final week with the Time Georgian movie critic spanned the next three months worth of Summer Blockbusters. Who will reign supreme is up to you, but it may weigh heavily to a certain dark superhero. Listen to the full segment here.
